Korean electronics maker LG Electronics has unveiled its 2022 lineup of ‘Tone Free’ true wireless headphones, and the flagship model ‘T90 Tone Free earbuds’ have a built-in equalizer and support Dolby’s Head Tracking technology.
The Dolby Atmos T90 Tone Free headphones are said to be the world’s first wireless headphones to support Dolby Head Tracking across all content and devices. Basically, this technology allows users to feel at the center of the scene. “Dolby Head Tracking recalibrates sound as users move their heads for a more natural sound experience,” LG said.
LG did not reveal pricing for the new headphones, which will launch in major global markets from late August.
The LG Tone Free range is compared to Apple AirPods Pro and Sony WF-1000XM4 and offers active noise cancellation and improved sound quality.
LG T90 Tone Free Headphones: Features
The T90 Tone Free headphones come with larger drivers that help generate deeper bass. The use of graphene, a premium material, reduces vibration and increases audio quality. “LG’s T90 headphones integrate the performance-enhancing features of Meridian Headphone Spatial Processing (HSP), a specialized technology from LG’s long-time superior sound delivery partner, Meridian Audio,” said LG. Meridian’s Perfect Balance technology allows the T90 headphones to achieve consistent tonal balance at any volume.
The T90s also come with the Snapdragon Sound Technology Suite, which provides sound quality — 24-bit/96kHz high-resolution audio — previously only available on wired headphones. LG said the crystal clear voice quality and low latency make them ideal not only for listening to audio, but also for making voice calls and playing games.
All in all, LG’s high-end wireless headphones offer enhanced active noise cancellation (ANC) with Double Step ANC algorithm and real-time ANC optimizer. The Double Step ANC algorithm features a new filter with a higher sampling rate to more effectively cancel out external noise and an advanced howl detection algorithm to eliminate unpleasant and distracting feedback. The Real Time ANC Optimizer, on the other hand, automatically adjusts the ANC performance by analyzing the actual position of the buttons inside the user’s ear via the internal microphones.
The Tone Free headphones, created in collaboration with the POSTECH Ergonomic Design Technology Lab, have an optimized shape that feels better in the ear. LG said the new models are smaller and lighter than their predecessors, meaning users can use TONE Free for longer periods with less distraction.
The new Tone Free models also come with the UVnano charging case, which uses ultraviolet light to help keep the earbuds hygienically clean. Provides wider coverage by sterilizing all parts of the ear gels. In addition, T90s adopt medical grade hypoallergenic ear gels to reduce the risk of skin irritation in the ear canal.
LG Tone Free fits TF7 and TF8
LG’s new Tone Free fit lineup includes the TF7 and TF8 models, designed for active moments, from running and mountain biking to vigorous training sessions in the gym. Both models incorporate SwivelGrip technology — which helps keep the earbuds snug and comfortable in place, even during the most intense workouts — and offer a lightweight design that promotes better air circulation, LG said.
Tone Free tuning models offer up to 10 hours of use on a single charge, while the case itself can provide 20 more, for up to 30 hours of listening enjoyment. The earbuds can be fully charged after approximately 1 hour in the UVnano charging case.
